Jackie’s Brickhouse Brings New Music, Menus, and Atmosphere in 2019!
Exciting changes are taking place at one of Kemah’s favorite spots for everything from relaxed afternoons with cold drinks to dynamic live music and nightlife on the dance floor! Fans of Jackie’s Brickhouse, now in its ninth year, will continue to enjoy the happy hour specials from Monday through Friday (all day on Monday!) and spicy, tasty crawfish—but now with a new atmosphere, and so much more!
“Over the past year, we began to remodel Jackie’s Brickhouse, with a lot of changes that have already taken place,” said General Manager John Barrera. “We are excited about the growth and rebranding,” he said, noting the new Jackie’s Brickhouse logo and the updated modern-industrial feel both inside and out.
As part of the revamping, patrons on their next go-around must visit the brand new Jackie’s Speakeasy upstairs. The rustic-modern wood and metal elements that now adorn the entire bar and grill are also woven into the elegant speakeasy, complete with sophisticated leather couches and chairs, all of which create a perfect space for special gatherings and events.
“It’s a VIP room ideal for special occasions. We have already hosted a variety of events here—even baby showers, and it’s an ideal location for booking wedding receptions, engagement parties, and much more,” Barrera said, adding that dates are filling up quickly throughout the year, so reservations for Jackie’s Speakeasy are highly encouraged as soon as possible. “We can also create any kind of special menu for your event, from a mashed potato bar to a taco bar—you name it! We can work with you to create your special event,” he said.
And speaking of food, guests can look forward to an updated menu at Jackie’s Brickhouse as well.
“We are in the process of restructuring our menu and tweaking some offerings. We will be adding on some requested dishes also, so look for a new menu soon!” he said, noting that the updates also include new service training for an even better guest experience at Jackie’s.
On the music front—because Jackie’s is known for bringing in live music that will draw everyone to the dance floor!—guests can look forward to more of the most popular tribute bands in the state.
“We are excited to bring in some great tribute bands at least twice a month. During February, that includes Infinite Journey (tribute to Journey) and a Tom Petty/Stevie Nicks tribute,” Barrera said, noting that beloved bands like the Velcro Pygmies and Mambo Jazz Kings will also hit the stage later in the month. “In March, we will also host tributes to George Strait, which we are really excited about,” adding that the renowned KISS tribute KISS ALIKE will perform as well, along with rising young stars Nick and the Groove who will open an unforgettable evening on March 16.
All in all, Jackie’s Brickhouse guests can continue to expect quality food, a variety of live music line ups and fun with pool, shuffle boards, and more—but now with a VIP loft not to be missed, and an updated, modern-rustic feel.
